Samsung S3 Does Not Power On
Posted on 2014-01-15
I had a customer bring in a Samsung Galaxy S3 that it was stuck on the boot screen. I tried to repair the issue with Odin, which did not work. Then I tried Heimdall, but I just got lost...
I found out that Samsung Kies repairs this issue with a firmware upgrade and recovery. So, I set up the phone to use Kies. It started the recovery, downloaded the file, then sat at 0% for an hour. After I was sure it was not doing anything, I restarted my computer and went to try again.
At this point, the phone does not turn on at all. I don't know how to get it to turn on so I can try again. Any suggestions? It's a GT-I9300.
